Red 8

At Steam Devil Spirits, we capture an Up North phenomenon - the naturally occurring wild yeast suspended in the air above West Grand Traverse Bay's navigational buoy No.8, known to local mariners simply as RED 8.

We harness these microscopic powerhouses, feed them a premium diet of grade-A molasses, then unleash their vapors inside our still to spin a potent steam devil that spawns matchless results: a truly regional rum, handcrafted from Northern Michigan's rich landscape and sweetwater seas for your own sublime moments.
